A powerful, page-turning thriller set in terrifying yet beautiful terrain, featuring a brave and resourceful heroine.
For fans of Dennis Lehane, Peter Hoeg's Miss Smilla's Feeling for Snow and listeners who love stories with a dark, gripping mystery at their heart.
Pirio Kasparov finds herself abandoned in the North Atlantic when the fishing boat she's on is rammed by a freighter that looms out of the silence of the sea. She somehow survives for nearly four hours in the icy water and is rescued by the Coast Guard.
The boat's owner and Pirio's fisherman friend, Ned, is not so fortunate. He disappears without a trace.
Compelled to look after Ned's son, Pirio can't shake the suspicion that the boat's sinking - and Ned's death - was no accident. With the help of a curious journalist named Russell Parnell, Pirio begins to unravel a lethal plot that takes her to Northern Canada and the ice-cold waters of Baffin Bay.
To survive, she must uncover long-lost secrets from her past, and confront her ultimate challenge: to trust herself again.
